Bob Jones Homeschooling Programs

From distance learning to standardized tests, Bob Jones homeschooling programs may offer you the convenience you want for your family. 

BJU Press is one of the largest home schooling text book suppliers - they have been publishing materials for Christian schools since 1974. As the home education movement grew in the 1980's, BJU Press began marketing their materials to homeschool families.

If you are looking for well known, proven products, Bob Jones curriculum may be the perfect fit for your child or family.

Bob Jones uses the traditional textbook and teacher-led method of teaching and offers many options so you can tailor their use to meet your child's unique learning needs. 

Our Bob Jones Homeschooling Experience

Although our family does not use Bob Jones, I have many friends who do, and love it. One of my daughters used BJU's World History for a high school co-op class. For the most part she enjoyed it. She said the textbook was interesting to read, and the tests were very thorough. There was also a good balance between traditional "seatwork" and hands-on-type projects.

BJU Purchasing Tip:
You can find this course, along with many other BJU products in PEAH's Discount Family Bookstore. Visit our online store...

Private School at Home

If you have ever considered private school, you know how expensive it is. However, Bob Jones homeschooling provides the benefits of a structured Christian education, without the high price tag of a private school.

Your child can learn at home via traditional textbooks, or through BJU's distance learning options: DVD, computer (hard drive) or online. The DVD's and hard drive come with all lessons - you lease the materials for the year, and then return them when you are done.

You have the flexibility of purchasing either a full grade curriculum kit or one course. BJU also publishes a variety of supplemental resources from books to reference materials.

Bob Jones Homeschooling Testimonials

Here are some testimonials, submitted by homeschooling families who use BJU materials in their home schools:

Kindergarten Kit Testimonial...

This Kindergarten Kit is Christian based and helpful in the discipleship of children. Although it can be pricey, it is worth the investment. The curriculum is very hands on and keeps children engaged. It is comprehensive and detailed; you can build lessons on top of one another. Submitted on January 14, 2104, by Kelechi, from Pennsylvania.

Another testimonial for grades 2, 3, and 4...

I have used Bob Jones Curriculum now for almost two years.  I have done 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade.  We have a schedule we go by and are able to get all of our lessons in.  I do however break down our subjects.  Example: We do H. Studies and Science on Mon., Wed., and Fri.  Then we would do Bible lessons on Tuesday and Thursday.  What I like most about the curriculum is how all the lessons are already done.  So  I just get together whatever I need and grab my book and go!  I buy the whole grade set and then I use them again the next year.  After that I sell my old set. Submitted on February 22, 2014, by Keri D, from Tennessee. 

A Bob Jones homeschooling testimonial from a Jr High/High School Teacher...

Being an educator for both Jr. High and High School, I find this curriculum has problems in these areas:

  • chapter information overload
  • tests- require memory recall on very very trivial things
  • teaches to only one type of learner
  • does not promote age appropriate critical thinking level skills
  • quantity information or quality information
  • same thing over & over- read/memorize/take test
  • does not keep students interested
  • the curriculum is very dull/mundane/rote and lacks in teaching mastery of the concepts and subject

My girls went to a private school that used the Bob Jones curriculum. The curriculum crushed both my girls' love for Science and History.  I find that the students who are gifted in memorizing, have photographic memories, or are "book people", do fine with this material. However, they too lack the mastery, critical thinking skills, and remembering what they just learned the week prior. The only positive thing I like about Bob Jones is that it is Christian based.

Standardized Tests and More

Bob Jones also provides home educating families with a full range of testing and evaluation services, from achievement to standardized tests. Many families find assessments and tests beneficial to keep up with their child’s progress, to see educational gaps that need attention, or to satisfy state homeschooling requirements.

From traditional textbooks to computer based lessons, to distance learning, Bob Jones allows YOU to choose the right option that works best with your family’s situation and budget.
